I bought new bed sheets the other day.
This may seem insignificant, but if you know me and my husband pretty well, you know that we don’t typically spend money on brand new things for ourselves. We spend money on food (way more than we should), and we spend money on the kids, but very little on ourselves. Most of what we own has been gifted to us through the years, and we tend to use things until they are worn out.
It’s not that we don’t like nice things, it’s that when it comes down to it, if I am standing in a store looking at a potential purchase, my mind wanders to the things that money could/should be used for if we don’t make said purchase. Every once in awhile we will be impulsive, but most of the time the item gets put back, with the idea we will get it in the near future. We never do.
The kids were away on Saturday, and I was running errands, and I came across a cute sheet set at the store and I ignored the inner monologue that constantly runs in my head. I threw them in the cart.
It’s a silly thing to make note of, really, but it’s very quiet in my house and I’m sitting on my bed staring at the cute new bedsheets, feeling like they spruced up the room and made my bedroom just a little more cozy. 🙂
So here’s to an impulse purchase now and again, especially one that isn’t for the kids! 🙂
